Michigan man makes a profitable error, Maryland woman still in the headlines
One of the most interesting stories related to the recent record-breaking US Mega Millions lottery is that of a Flint, Michigan man who won $4,428,422 thanks to a mistake he made when buying the tickets for the state lottery.
Namely, after putting a $20 bill into the ticket vending machine, instead of a $10 one, the anonymous man decided to purchase a Cash for Life lottery ticket, making a mistake of his life!
In a comment on the win, he said: "I didn't mean to put $20 into the lottery ticket machine; I thought I grabbed a $10, then I had to buy something. I picked the $10 Cash for Life ticket because I only play $10 tickets."
Mistake or not, he now has the option of receiving an annual payment of $208,000 for the rest of his life, with a minimum prize guarantee of $4,160,000, or a one-time cash payment of $4,428,422.
Asked what he's going to do with the money, the lucky punter said he plans to live "debt-free from bills and mortgage payments" and share his luck with family members.
In related news, allegedly one of the three holders of tickets sold in Maryland, Illinois and Kansas which each won a third of the $656,000 jackpot, a Maryland McDonald's worker Mirlande Wilson (37) is still in the news, after last week when she announced she is the winner from the state. This caused a big row with her fellow employees, with whom she declined to share the money.
Yet, there's still no proof of her win, as she has only produced a line of unlikely excuses instead of evidence. Whether she's made up the whole story or perhaps trying to defeat the claims of her colleagues at work, it remains to be seen.
